Müritz - endless opportunities for outdoor fans

Youth Hostel at the lake


The Youth Hostel in Waren (Müritz) lies directly next to a small "sea" - that is the original Slavic meaning of Müritz. Germany's second largest lake after Lake Constance is not just a lake. It is the largest lake of the Mecklenburg Lake District and offers endless opportunities for outdoor fans - at, in and on the water. The pristine nature around the lake is known for its rare flora and fauna. The lake is home to ospreys and white-tailed sea eagles, and in autumn thousands of cranes squawk their way to their resting places on the Mecklenburg Lake District. The animals below the water's surface are probably best seen in the acquarium: In Waren you can go and dive with the fish at the Müritzeum, Germany's largest freshwater aquarium.

These are some of the highlights of Waren Youth Hostel (Müritz):

  • Top location: The Youth Hostel is right next to the lake
  • Ideal conditions for school classes and groups
  • Many possibilities for cyclists and water sports enthusiasts in the Mecklenburg Lake District and in Müritz National Park

Waren is the heart of Mecklenburg's lake district. Which means it is surrounded by highlights. To the south, Germany's largest inland lake is a paradise not only for water sports fans. The Müritz lake is also just right for a bit of fun paddling in the water or for sightseeing from a a boat if you prefer the more comfortable approach. To the east, the Müritz national park is ideal terrain for long cycling tours if you want to get moving. The national park is full of exciting adventures, and many rare species live in its untouched areas. You will even find ospreys and sea eagles. And thousands of cranes stop over on the shores of the lake during the periods of migration. If, however, you are more into urban life, all you need to do is walk out of the door. Waren, the big city on the Müritz lake, meets its visitors with a mediterranean atmosphere.

The historic city centre was carefully refurbished, its many timbered houses give it a lovely flair for shopping. The city's calendar of events is bursting with sports and cultural events. And you mustn't miss the Müritzeum! Go there and learn lots of new things about nature, and be inspired for your next day out on the countryside.
